Yesterday, news broke that, one of Ghone TV’s finest news anchors, Keminni Amanor had left Bola Ray’s EIB Network to Media General, the owners of TV3.
The news story was published by several blogs and what even made the story more credible was the fact that, the poachers themselves, equally published their ‘Joyous snatch‘ on their own website, 3news.com, affirming that, it was not just a rumour but a ‘Done Deal’
Hours after the publication went viral, with some industry persons questioning why she’s decided to leave EIB especially when 2 other women had left the network to join competitor brands of EIB, we see a picture of Bola Ray and Keminni popping out on Instagram with a caption, that seems to shade Media General subtly.
I am not the type that likes to watch TV a lot as I spend most of my time watching movies, series or football matches, while working on my blogs but I have watched Keminni a couple of times on Tv especially during the December elections and I can say, she’s such a brilliant person and exudes soo much confidence when she’s on TV .
She looks good on screens and she has this dexterity with the English language and how she flows (Ts3r3se, oti blofo ankasa na )ka brofu mani y3 d3).
When I first read the news on a colleague’s blog and later saw the same story on the 3news.com’s website, it reminded me of a conversation I had with a friend the other time. My friend had told me that, he’s anticipating more people leaving EIB in the coming months because of certain happenings there, that some of the workers didn’t find convenient.
When news of AJ Nelson broke, we felt that was going to be all, then Naa Ashorkor left (for her we know, she’s been waiting for an opportunity to leave already) and then we heard Keminni had also left–But Bola Ray pulled some magic!
Yes, it’s obvious, one needs not to understand quantum physics to know Bola Ray pulled some’magic’ to get Keminni to change her mind about moving to Media General.
We doubt Media General would intentionally put out a story that, Keminnni was moving to their network when they had not made a deal with her.
I believe Bola Ray decided to beat the offer Media General made to her, which must have made her change her mind in the very last minute.
Who doesn’t want a good deal? Some ‘offers’ are soo good that it can make you forget that you even have issues with the person making you that offer.
We know Bolar Ray can be described as one of the successful businessmen in Ghana and no good businessman wants to lose a valuable employee like Keminni. Bola had the opportunity to grab Nana Aba Anamoah when TV3 decided to suspend her without any ‘valid’ reason and so it makes sense that Bola did the needful to avoid Tv3 snatching a brilliant girl like Keminni from his outfit.
Keminni has decided to stay with EIB Network for now but that doesn’t mean, she never decided to leave–Some friends, associates, and fans of Bola Ray or EIB Network should stop making things appear as though, nothing happened.
Who knows, perhaps she got 100% increase in salary and a new car or something much bigger than what TV3 offered. It could also be that Bola Ray just Sweet-talked her into staying at his brand.
